Sowing the seeds in TTT's ACE goody bags

If you took home one of our TTT goodie bags and are wondering what to do with the packet of seeds in it, here are some simple planting instructions.

Radish 
You can grow these in the ground or in containers or window boxes.

Sow thinly in soil and cover with 1.5cm fine soil. Firm down gently and keep moist.
Seedlings should appear within 2-3 weeks.
Thin out the plants if necessary and keep soil moist. Radishes should be ready to harvest in 4-6 weeks.


Lettuce
You can grow these in the ground, containers or even hanging baskets (good for evading snails!)

Sow thinly in soil and cover with 1.5cm fine soil.
Firm down gently and keep moist.
Seedlings should appear in 7-14 days.
Thin out seedlings if necessary and keep moist and weed-free.
Pick and use when needed


Peas 
Grow these in the ground of a large pot. You will need to support the plants with netting or bamboo canes and string.

Plant seeds 5cm apart and cover with 5cm of fine soil. Firm down gently and keep moist. Seedlings should appear within 10-14 days.


Protect young plants from birds with twigs or netting and remember to support the plants. Keep moist and weed-free. Pick when ready.

Send us some photos of your vegetable-growing successes!
